lyrics

What if I’m not ready to be a human being?
What if I don’t want to want so much anymore?
Then don’t put on your clothes today and lay stiller than a stone
Let go of your noisy dreams and be quiet instead

What if I’m not ready to go out and make a living?
What if I’d rather swallow glass than make something of myself?
Then don’t put on your clothes today and lay stiller than a stone
If you open your eyes they’ll see you and dress you for the races

The mountain crawled
The silence crawled
The old house crawled
The crows they crawled
The river crawled
The old man crawled
We all used to crawl
We haven’t forgotten how.

But what if I’m not ready to forget about the ghosts I know
Leave them all behind and chase the love that wants to be chased?
Then don’t put on your clothes today and lay stiller than a stone
Fold your arms across your chest and make your breathing slow
The ghosts you know will come to you all thin from sin and song
They will curse and comfort you even if they were never there at all
They were never there at all. They were never there at all!

The mountain crawled
The silence crawled
The old house crawled
The crows they crawled
The river crawled
The old man crawled
We all used to crawl
Don’t pretend you’ve forgotten how.

What if I’m not ready to say I know the answer?
What if I don’t want to know so much anymore?
Then remember you know nothing
And you’re not the answer the universe needs
And then get back on your knees and crawl

We all used to crawl
And we were wiser then
